If it is a Baby, Is it a Person?

The CNN headline touted, “The world’s most premature baby has celebrated his first birthday after beating 0% odds of surviving.”[1] The baby is Richard Scott William Hutchinson and he was born at 21 weeks and 2 days. In the article’s accompanying picture, he still wears a nasal cannula but the device fails to obstruct his view of his birthday cake or the clear joy expressed on his happy, round face.

Scientists Ask Supreme Court to Modernize Outdated, “Cruel” U.S. Abortion Law

Today Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI), together with Dr. Maureen Condic, a human embryology professor and CLI associate scholar, filed an amicus brief asking the Supreme Court to uphold Mississippi’s 15-week abortion limit in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization and allow legislators to enact abortion laws based on modern science.

Mississippi’s 15-Week Gestational Limit on Abortion is Mainstream Compared to European Laws

In 2018, Mississippi passed the Gestational Age Act, limiting elective abortion to 15 weeks. Mississippi’s 15-week law was invalidated by the lower federal courts and will be considered by the United States Supreme Court during their next term, which begins in October 2021. A comparative analysis between Mississippi and European abortion laws finds gestational limits on elective abortion—terminations performed without restriction as to reason—prior to 15 weeks, and more often at 12 weeks, are common and the norm for the majority of European countries. This comparison found 47 out of 50 European countries analyzed in this report either do not allow elective abortion (8) or limit elective abortion to 15 weeks or earlier (39), whereas, other than Texas, no state in the U.S. limits elective abortion to 15 weeks.

New Study: Mississippi’s 15-Week Limit on Abortion in the ‘Mainstream’ of European Law

A comprehensive analysis of European abortion laws shows the overwhelming majority of European nations limit elective abortion prior to 15 weeks gestation.  This fall, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, concerning the constitutionality of limits on abortion prior to viability. The case was prompted by a Mississippi law that protects the life of the unborn starting at 15 weeks gestation.
